A film by Petra Cyrus | 2019 | ZDF 37°
One diet after the other – losing weight, yo-yo effect, gaining weight and then some more. People suffering from obesity can’t escape this vicious cycle. Successes are followed by failures and vice versa. The stigma attached to obesity is an added issue individuals suffer from, often even within one’s family or circle of friends, as many people assume that being overweight is the person’s own fault. The result: The person concerned despairs, feels rejected and withdraws. The film follows a young woman, over a longer time period, who undergoes a gastric bypass surgery and a family that is trying to battle the pounds the regular way.
